Congratulations to Parsons Lean Executive Director Perry Thompson for earning his Lean Black Belt!

The Black Belt is the top certification for a Lean Leadership program. This certification was achieved after significant effort by Perry beginning in 2014.

Earning a Lean Black Belt certified by the Lean Leadership Institute requires coaching by another Black Belt in the active use of all of the lean tools and processes as well as coaching others in implementing lean tools.

Lean Leadership Institute’s George Trachilis, with consultation by Dr. Jacob Abraham, provided the coaching and certification for Perry. Many have experienced Perry’s high-quality coaching as well as helped develop the skills he needed to earn this recognition.

We expect Perry’s accomplishment will inspire other Parsons leaders to commit to achieving Lean Certification in the Yellow and Green Belt levels as well as some dedicated Lean Leaders willing to follow Perry’s fine example. Thank you, Perry, for providing this path of accomplishment for us all to follow as we continue on our Lean journey at Parsons.
